Site Help / How To: Graphics In Submissions
« Last post by Strolen on January 24, 2015, 06:03:43 PM »
It used to be complex, it no longer is.

Click on the picture graphic and a pop-up will allow you to drag and drop you photo and/or upload it through a file browser. Additionally, you can still paste a link and hotlink from photo sites that allow it.

The graphic will be saved to a folder that is specific to you. Nobody else has access to these albums....yet.
The graphic will also be resized to a max resolution. That is hard coded and cannot be changed by you. So if you upload a huge picture, I will shrink it and make it more manageable.

ATTRIBUTION and using other people's art

First, absolutely use art that you find to enhance your submissions here. Art is awesome and we love it!

A great many artists do not have attribution requirements on their website. For the ones that do, you must follow their requirements for the usage of their art. I will uphold their requirements.

If there is no information or the art is on a random art page, then we will default to the below.

Just like our default rules for our site and using our submissions, link back to where you got it. If you know the artists name, use that as the link text. Give them the credit they deserve for creating something awesome enough that you want to show it in your submission.

Simple as that as far as I am concerned.

We will 100% respect any requests by the artist to remove it if asked.

In terms of the names, I think there's an easy 3rd way approach which is to put the English meaning in OOC and then use the made-up language throughout. Or get players to tag a bracket after their names containing the English meaning.

What you came up in terms of the actual sounds in use sound sensible and certainly more than I could think up. The idea that the cavemen are not on earth or even human is excellent. It would make things a bit harder (well, depending on how different from earth/humans it really is), I think, but I seem to be a somewhat crazy woman who always goes for ideas that are out of my own element :lol:

Ni hao. :) If I had infinite time, I would learn every language.

I know what you mean, when you're teaching someone else, you tend to realize things about your own language that you had never considered before. And when you look at related languages that share a common base.

Good idea. Do you think the names could be in English denoting their actual meaning or should everything be refered to in the made up language? For instance Him-hunt-well instead of Mwr-huhu-ohm or something. :P It would make it easier to remember maybe but dunno if the opposite would make it feel more authentic.

I've been playing around a bit. Two words for hunt, one for a successful hunt and one for a failed hunt. Huhu or something similar to mimic the panting sounds of exertion, and ohm and gwr for a pleased sound of eating and a complaining growling belly. And then to specify, mimicking the animal's noise. How does that sound?

I feel it doesn't neccesarily have to be set on earth and the tribe doesn't have to be human either. It would probably make for a more interesting game if the animals and enviroments encountered aren't what one would normally expect, and it would also avoid the expected gender roles of hunter and gatherer.

Regretting choosing that title now. :P He was much cooler in Arkham City. Sounds a bit like the guy who voiced Grimlock.

Next up, let's try heraldry. Could there be magic to this art? Space heraldry? A special group of heralds?
